As a previous reviewer correctly stated there had to be twice as many outside than got in. Remember BCT is the Berkeley High school auditorium. Enjoyed the banter from Bobby Phil and Jerry. Others here mention Jerry's apparent lack of interest, who knows if that's how he felt or not, but without question he was visibly frustrated. After Dupree's with his back to the crowd he gave an exacerbated shrug. Held both his arms up and let them fall ( monitors? Flubbed lyrics?) Was still a special night.Beautiful recording too.
Subject: Yesssssss, two points only for me...
Two-- This acoustic Throwing Stones is perfection. A nice choice for an unlikely acoustic number as it turned out to be the most surpringly impressive number of the performance.
Subject: Excellent Show!!
I have an AUD recording of this show on a 90min Maxwell XlII cassette tape. Yeah, remember those. I guess some even older fans will say "you young whipper snappers I have it 8 track" or reel to reel.
Unfortunately, I haven't had a tape deck in like 10 years or so. So it's nice to dig around the attic pull a few out and then track them down on the archive every now and again.
For what it’s worth is that this show circulated to me at least as a GD show, not that scratching out the old set lists, dates, cities and venues were an accurate way to keep track of things. All that being said, the show is terrific no matter what the "title" of the "band" is.
The audience recording I had was average at best, but one cool feature of AUD recordings is sometimes hearing the crowd respond to a particular high point in the music. This is the case me when the (when I had no wings to fly) part is sung during "Attics", the crowd just erupts. I guess that resonated with me.
Who knows? Maybe someday, somebody will get a matrix so I can enjoy both a SBD and AUD blend.
Subject: 90's acoustic--nice!
Anyway, great sound, cool show, would have loved to have been there! EXCELLENT Attics, and as others have mentioned, though I was never much of a Vince-fan, either, he sounds really nice here.
Subject: Fantastic!! P and F with Jerry!
Download this now for a great late era acoustic Dead performance (maybe the last acoustic show evr???)!
this show is great, yeah jerry forgets a few lyrics but so what, the playing alone makes up for it. for late era dead this is a gem and also a rarity. anyone know of any other acoustic shows between 90-95?
this show would be great to see on video, to bad it wasnt filmed, or maybe it was? anyone know
Subject: : )
Subject: a look back
Subject: HOLY SHIT
I agree. what is an acoustic set without Jerry telling his crew that the monitors are too high. ;)
Subject: Great show in a great town!
By the way, I like all the monitor issues, etc.., cuz it gives the whole gig a down home impromptu ambiance without screwing the whole performance up. I miss you jerry!
Subject: Pretty good, but...
Subject: Rare acoustic fun
Subject: Definitely a must have!
This was indeed the very first "Phil and Friends" show. It was a benefit for the Berkeley Education Foundation's music program, of which Phil was a part of when he was a kid. It was probably billed as Phil and Friends so as to attract less attention then advertising it as the Dead, but that's just a guess on my part. Either way, it sold out fast, and lucky for me tickets went on sale on a Monday, instead of the usual Sunday, so the lines were much shorter.
This is a fantastic recording of a rare performance. A short but sweet show. There may be a few flubs here and there, but this show will always a special place in my heart. Definitely a must have! Enjoy!
Subject: This show has been around for a while now...
Subject: god i love this show
Subject: This Phil Show Is Sweat
Subject: I agree with Deadbuck! This is NOT a Dead show...
If ppl keep referring to this as a "semi-official" GD show, the soundboard may disappear. So, DL it now...and remember -- Grateful Dead? naw, this is a Phil Lesh & Friends show.
And, BTW, it's really, really sweet. The Attics, Cassidy > Bird Song > Throwing Stones is just so great. Jerry, we miss ya big-time. And, Phil, thanks for keeping this download accessible. We love ya!

It is a refined, short show, but very well played. Notable to me is the vocal harmonies in Attics of My Life, and an exotic Cassidy>Birdsong jam.
If you like the acoustic Dead, this is must have.
The show itself is a little on the sloppy side on Garcia's and Weir's part. Phil is barely audible in this mix (but he gets slightly louder throughout the set), and even with some EQ magic, he is a little distant. Vinnie, believe it or not in my opinion, gives the most solid performance of the night. Still 4 stars just for the cause which was most worthy, and the fact that it happened.
Subject: Very Nice
Subject: I echo all the previous reviews

You can find a review link (RV) in the show detail box on the 1958-1998 page. It's a very honest and informative review by a certain Nicholas Meriwether who, according to my search engine, apparently was born in 1631 and settled in Virginia. Talk about dead. Probably another Nicholas Meriwether went to this benefit I'm thinking. Maybe the one who worked on the deadlettersmagazine.com a few years ago. Anyway, read the review!

needs to hear this. A late career acoustic performance with longtime mates Bobby and Phil, makes for a very special evening of music. Vince adds some wonderful color and flourishes. Stand out tunes for me are the "Dupree's" and "Attics of my Life" (and kudos to Robert Hunter for penning such a sweet and lonesome soliloquy). Consider doing what Im doing: Download, grab a cold bottle of Brooklyn Lager, put on some good quality headphones and smile, smile, smile. P.S. In agreement with the previous review, adding this show into the Grateful Dead category would not be a bad move at all.
Very cool as I have never seen a soundboard of this. The widely circulated AUD source is pretty good, especially during Throwing Stones where you can hear the taper going "Ashes ashes all fall down" along with the band. Anyway the soundboard version is much cleaner and clearer. The beand seems to be in a very good mood and are talkative in the beginning. Great to hear some of the last days of real good Jerry acoustic.
This is a must have!
It really should be in the GD section IMHO.
